Nativity B.V.M. Elementary School, part of Nativity B.V.M. Cathedral Parish, serves the children of the Gulf Coast area.  As a Catholic school, we strive to help our students develop into fully integrated human persons who are creative and Christ-centered.  In an environment of love, prayerfulness, justice and peace, we provide a high quality education that has, as its goal, the development of each child’s spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, social, psychological and physical capabilities.

Philosophy

The Christian community of Nativity B.V.M. School strives to help its students develop into creative, Christ-centered persons.  We provide for them an environment where the Gospel message is proclaimed and lived.  Love, prayerfulness, justice and peace are fostered, and a generous spirit of service to the entire human family is encouraged.

We recognize parents as the primary educators of their children and, in cooperation with them, we strive to help each child grow into a fully integrated human person.  We do this by providing an education that has as its goal the development of each child’s spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, social, psychological and physical capacities.
